My baby has a smell just at her soft spot. She sweats a lot

Customer Question

My baby has a smell just at her soft spot. She sweats a lot when she is upset but I'm concerned about hormonal conditions. It smells musty or like sweaty feet. She has some cradle cap on her eyebrows but I don't see any on her head. She is 2 months.

Her cradle cap on her eyebrows is now gone she had it only when she was younger

Cradle cap is a fungus and can account for a musty smell. Other genetic disorders such as cystic fibrosis or diabetes can cause an odor. If she is 2 months old, she should be having a check up soon and you can bring it up to your pediatrician.
